This patch adds support for the SPI Chips Atmel AT25DF32,
ST M25P80, ST M25P16, M25P32, ST M25P64 attached to the ICH9.
Because chipset plays an important role in communicating with these
chips, it was not possible to integrate this support into the already 
existing spi.c
This module was tested with the devices as mentioned above, but
it should be easy to expand it for other SPI chips attached to an ICH.

The previous patch was buggy; there was a merging conflict in my local code 
repository, which was incuded into the patch; sorry for that.

I did not yet set the test status flag to any TEST_OK for my supporting 
function, because yet i dont know, who has the permission to do that; is it 
the initiator of this code, or any acknowledging person ?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards
